The Perfect Location to live in

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2022

The building is well laid out with good space in the corridors so people can pass each other easily and plenty of elevators. With access to to roof areas, 11th floor and 12th from, from work hub and garden room there are fantastic views so when breaking from home working and great place to take 10 minutes to chill.

Well thought out meeting area beside reception area with tea and coffee facilities. Having a room which can be booked for parties and / or having family and friends over for a meal, great cooking facilities in it, is a bonus.

With TV Rooms, which can be booked for private parties i.e. film night with friends, and a well thought out gym with all the equipment you need, it hits top ratings with me.

The Laundry Room has plenty of machines and is well laid out with a clothes horse if you do not wish to tumble dry and also ironing facilities.

The building is kept impressively clean and in good working order at all times.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Perfect location for shops, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, open spaces all within a few minutes walk maximum and central for both bus and rail transport, train station being 10 minutes walks away maximum and all buses around city have stops within a maximum of 5 minute walks from the building.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

You just never actually know how well supported you will be by building management and customer services. Whilst a lot of companies make claims of being great with support this one just does it.

From the top down, Brenda being the overall manager, to Bruce and Natasha the 2 other managers right through to all the customer service people, Jordan and Madi and Rowan and Vaida and Phil, Stuart in Maintenance, not forgetting the night shift security staff of Rich and Sam, you get the feeling they are all happy to work here and more than happy to assist you with anything.

The cleaners, whose names escape me, are working round the building 7 days a week keeping the elevators and communal area very clean for us and always have a smile and warm greeting for people.

You do not expect to find people who take such pride in their jobs and actually care and wish to help people and THAT was the pleasant surprise I found about this place, having been in many places which say they do then do not ACTUALLY do!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

There is an expectation of respect for everyone staying here and that behaviour will be appropriate. I had an issue with someone slamming a door and it was resolved extremely fast. If I notice anything, which residents do have to help management with, and report it, such as a hinge on a door coming loose or an elevator with a warning light, they are on it in minutes.

The whole place made me feel at ease. It has several quiet, clean, modeen, spacious and calming places to study, relax or even to hangout with friends. gym and TV rooms are super clean and comfortable. Standard rooms are perfectly sized for one to two people, super clean and well furnished and equipped.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The location is perfect, you can literally go anywhere from here in less than 10 mins walking, lots of shops and shopping centers and only few mins away from union st. very easy to get around with public transportation.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Before moving in they have informed me with what I would need to buy and have clearly explained the area. Also, there was a cute bag with essential stuff like kitchen and toilet papers, detergents and sprays, that was a lovely gesture.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

All the team are easy to talk and extremely friendly, always there and has never failed to offer help, very quickly to respond.

Building management is friendly and organised, nothing but helpful. Really nice, modern design and comfortable apartments. Tenants are quiet but friendly. Facilities are good, not left wanting. Nice view from apartment window too, not a deal breaker but makes a difference.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great range of close stores, restaurants and bars close by. Not too far from public transport access either.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Don’t hesitate to talk to management if there is an issue, even if it seems insignificant I’m sure they’d be helpful.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Haven’t had any issues, but management have always been friendly

The Point is such a modern and beautiful design which is nice clean and bright in Granite City. Facilities are fantastic which you can stay in your space or join in resident lounge, Garden Room on the 12th That is phenomenal view of Aberdeen City. You can become an amazing host to welcome your friends and family on 10th floor which is full of amenities for your party. it also amazing view to look over the city.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The Point is a perfect location for who want city lifestyle. It is right in the heart of Aberdeen. Restaurant, Bar, Shopping centre and night clubs at your door steps. However it is a little bit of noise as near the train line and roads. it is suitable for non owner car but there is bicycle parking which is handy for students. Personally I am not own any of those. The Point is suitable for my lifestyle. The service is fantastic. Staff are all extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Very good at first viewing. I was showed and gave good introduction about The Point.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes They are very helpful. If there is any issue arise they come up with solutions quickly.

One of the better accommodations for students and professionals in all of Aberdeen

Review Date Sep 2022

Modern design and facilities, although the gym is a little too small, it is brand new and have all the basic equipments, plenty of study space on the upper floors and very friendly and welcoming staffs, damaged equipments and appliances were fixed at moments noticed.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good pubs, cinemas and malls, transportations are nearby. Since the closed section of Union Street has now been reopened, getting to university campus and exploring the city has never been easier.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Arrange a viewing as soon as possible. It’s best to see the apartment for yourself, only you can decide if you’ll like living here.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

All of the problems raised, such as issues with joining the gym and other minor appliance issues, were resolved within a matter of days.

Location is bang on, the building looks amazing, love the Facilities available, the garden room and working hub are brilliant features if you want a change of scenery. the concierge staff are super friendly, Always have a smile on there face and always willing to help.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Perfect location, near all shops, bars and restaurants. Could do with free parking but as in city centre might be a big ask. Can hear nightclub music at night but once windows are shut not to bad.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The only negative I would say is the noise from the club, but would recommend getting a room on opposite side. But not too bad once window is closed.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes, anytime I have a problem the staff are very efficient to get the job done.

Hello Asher,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your review, and for your feedback, which our team were delighted to receive. As we’re in the heart of the city centre it can be a little noisy at times, but I’m glad to hear that the double glazing is doing its job, and the team have been so friendly and helpful.

Many thanks
Brenda.
